a coat of paint

Sorry for being MIA but this has been the busiest week of my career! Just wanted to pop in and show you my new client's house. The amazing results that come from a simple coat of paint - jaw dropping!

P.S. It is Benjamin Moore 1611 - one shade lighter than Pelican Gray....

Before - Butter Gone Bad
After - Pale Gray - So Chic!

Wow! What a difference. It looks so elegant and the chandelier doesn't hurt either!

What happened to the window on the left?

This is actually the other side - there are two rooms attached with the same fireplace and chandeliers - I didn't have a pic of the same exact spot...:)

Jaw dropping is an understatement. That's it, I'm hiring a painter!

We used Benjamin Moore 1611 in the front two rooms and 1612 (Pelican Gray) in the dining room - it is just a touch darker. I am going to paint a medium gray on the shades for the chandeliers and sconces and the drapes are going to be charcoal dupione silk!
